When Blizzard announced Diablo 3 for PlayStation 3 back in February, we sort of assumed it'd inevitably come to Xbox 360 as well. Indeed it will, the company confirmed today, announcing that both editions will hit on the same day: September 3.
The Infernal Helm, announced as a pre-order bonus for the PS3, will also be available for the Xbox 360, wearable by any class and giving extra experience for leveling.
"Playing Diablo 3 on a big screen with your friends brings a whole new level of intensity to the game, and with all of the control and interface adaptations we've made, it's extremely fun to play on PS3 and Xbox 360," said Mike Morhaime, CEO of Blizzard, in a release. "In addition to the fine-tuning we've done for the console versions, we're also including major content and design updates we've made to the PC version over the past year, so players can expect an epic Diablo gaming experience when the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions launch in September."
Blizzard is already developing the game for the next generation of consoles, having revealed a PS4 version when it announced it for PS3, so it also makes sense that a Xbox One version is forthcoming, perhaps waiting for the reveal at Microsoft's E3 Xbox presentation on June 10.
